"Lovely hotel, free bus to shopping centre&old town"
Arrived late on a Friday night, staff were excellent and offered a porter to carry our bags to our room. Facilities in the room were excellent, the free bus to the shopping centre and the old town was a great help to see Albufeira. The entertainment in the evening was excellent and varied for all ages.

"Hotel OK"
Now changed hands and owned by MGM & Muthru Hotels. Facilities OK but now has special areas designated for INFINITY (presumed Timeshare owners) which is not the way to encourage others to visit the complex. The more you pay the better your treatment! We were put in an annexe on second floor with no lift and were expected to pay 150 euros for the transfer which one of staff organised for us into downstairs apartment (My wife refused to pay)

"Club Praira"
Beds were twins, holes in the curtains, no air condition and would have been impossible to stay in the summer,the road was noisy and the neighbours even more. Would not recommend this Hotel on the basis I stayed, i.e. apartment. Internet access was expensive and really should be included in the price in this day and age.

Can't fault apart from a couple of things which need attention. Poor drainage in shower and aircon in bedroom not working to full capacity. Also need to address the issue of towels on the sunbeds by the pool but no bodies! This was our experience.

"Good location, cleaning service not so good."
Apartements in a really good location, our room was in front of the beach. Only problem is no air con, there is 2 fans but didn't make much difference although I would still go back. Our room was cleaned every second day, ment to be anyway as it was left not cleaned for 2 days therefore we had no towels or toilet roll and had to ask reception for them. Cleaners changed our pillow cases only once and didn't change our sheets at all which really annoyed me as especially due to the heat and no air con you were generally going to be sweating in bed. Next time I will make sure that they are being changed.

This is a classic holiday "complex", very big but you certainly get your money's worth. Right on the beach and excellent facilities within the hotel itself. Easy access to local shops and bars, including (but not exclusively if you want to avoid it) the Strip. Fantastic excursion opportunities as well.

We had a studio which was big enough for the 2 of us. Facilities in room were great. Close to beach and short 5min walk to "The Strip" where all the bars and restaurants are. The sea is cold, not like the Med, but if you can't brave it, the pool is lovely.

"Great View"
We had a great view of the beach from our room, though I don't think all other guests would be that fortunate. We were especially fortunate as well with the weather. Apparently temperatures in the Algarve go up beyond 40 Celsius in August and if it had gone anywhere near that we could have suffocated as the rooms are not air conditioned. After three days of no housekeeping, we asked at the reception and were told they come every three days. well on the fourth they showed up. So save your towels. I suppose the Hotel could be a paradise for families with young children who need to be entertained till past eleven pm. every night with shows and loud music. We personally found that a bit invading and un-relaxing.

"Survivable but not great"
Most people left after 1-2 days. Lay on a pull out metal frame. Tiles broken, no option to get air circulated through the room, except a loud fan, that at least moves still hot air. Not room for both "beds" out and for instance having chairs comfortable. Lots of sound... Everywhere... All day and night. Reception got music, live music, discotheque and more.. Together at the sme time.. Same goes for outdoor areas, and hotels all around obviously have big "get-drunk-shout-and-party" all night. Around 3.30 is the nicest time, still party, but mostly you'll only hear sprinklers. Most of staff in restaurant is helpful and friendly, the food however is highly overpriced and poor quality. Eat at happy house, Raina, Beiras, Edouardo or well anywhere else...

"Worst room ever"
I stood in line for 40 minutes twice to check in. It was after 6 pm before they gave us a key. Attempted to get a drink at bar. Bartender was rude. We left after sitting there for 30 minutes and no service. The room was very outdated and only had a full murphy bed which pulled out of the wall. The wifi never worked. They should be embarassed. Location was the good thing about it. The pictures do not match. Do not stay here.

the first few days all seemed nice, but for the last few days a giant screen was erected for the football. we were not pre warned at all about this, not while booking, nor when we checked in. We were advised on the day of the first game by flyer. the screen was directly below our room. the footabll wasn't the problem it was the disco music played in between and after it. it ruined our last 2 days. the staff were not interested, just saying 'you have to see the customer care manger tomorrow' but tomorrow never comes as he was always too busy. The staff's attitude was extremely dissappointing, the place was loud and owing to this we shall never return.

"Good place to stay, and central"
The hotel was in a central location, at the bottom of the Strip, with access to the beach and boarded beach walks. There were renovations taking place through out the appartments with apt upgrading. We were lucky to have received one of the newly refurbished rooms, the decor is lovely, very comfortable with Air conditioning, and all the kitchen facilities you need inc a dishwasher. We had a large balcony with full sun from midday until the evening overlooking the pool, with new outdoor furniture. The staff were very helpful and apt was cleaned every other day. When all the renovations are finished these apts will be fab. Although there was some noise, I cannot complain as we had got one of the upgraded apts. There is also a great shuttle bus service from the hotel to the old town, and between the other hotels in the group. We took the bus in the evenings to Forte do Vale, and then walked it only takes about 10 mins to the old town. You can also get the tourist train at the Forte do Vale roundabout. Had a great holiday and weather was fab! alot of lovely restaurants esp the Sizzling Stone close to the apts, and Flavours in the Old Town. TIP if you are staying in apts overlooking the pool take the lift to the 8th floor and walk up the steps to the 9th floor here you can walk through the gardens to the main road, much easier than walking up the hill road and there is Sol Cafe which has free wifi, as the hotel lobby wifi was not great..

This was the 4th time we have stayed at this hotel in the last 15 years. Facilities are good (swimming pool/sauna etc) the location is perfect (just next to the beach) staff helpful and speak good english. Rooms are kept clean with maid service. The only down side is the construction work that is going on at present. Once this is finished it will return to being a good choice of location.

would not have booked at this hotel had we been told of horrendous noise from builders from 8am to 8pm EVERYDAY!!!! (except sunday ) appartment above and below and two doors down worked on? a holiday is suppose to be restful! not a builders yard! we also had a light blow because of leaking water and at first were told to put a bucket under it (this being 1130pm when reported) but after insisting it was dangerous being electic we were given next appartment having had to move (no assistance given) in the pouring rain therefore my overall holiday while at this hotel was disappointing i might add the holiday was ruined by not being able to rest at all and the only way to get any peace was to leave the hotel!!

"nice for the price"
hotel at time of visit (early Feb) was being refurbished being most of the studios around the pool, so a lot of noise early morning to late evening for people in that area, advised to check with your agent or hotel if your travelling in the next few weeks. We paid for an upgrade to a 1 bedroom app.which was 200yds up the road from the hotel complex so ok for some but we felt a little out of it, the back hotel is situated close the beach with around 4 to 5 eating places but be prepared to walk a lot to the main areas,the strip about 10/15 min walk and old town around 30+ mins, but you can get the small train from the strip to old town,run till 11ish for 4 euro for a day pass,good deal The hotel is clean, reception area nicely furnished with a very nice coffee shop to the side serving snacks and very nice cakes at reasonable prices, large flat screen showing all the premier league action, seats and chairs outside to enjoy your coffee,WiFi free in reception.the staff were very nice and the service was good, overall the hotel was very good value for the price we paid but it must be noted this was early Feb, this will obviously change in the summer months so debatable whether I would want to pay the full whack for the same

This was an exceptionally good Expedia deal, inexpensive for the combined flight and hotel as well as transfer from Faro airport. Everything went smoothly and no isssues whatsoever. Im sure in the summer time the whole resort will be heaving but early December very few tourists were evident and much of the local resort area outside the hotel was mothballed. The hotel itself did have enjoyable entertainment every night.
